You know what I detest about a lot of Nigerians? Many of you are just too judgemental. Many of you lack compassion and empathy. It must be the hostile Nigerian environment. First of all, is the OP going to attend skill acquisition for free? Does it not cost money to learn 'hand work'? Even the girl that you know makes chin-chin and supplies to primary and secondary schools, she must have had someone that spoke to the headmistress/headmaster and/or principal on her behalf to allow her supply chin-chin to the students and staff. Why do you talk as if you don't know how things work in Nigeria? Okay, even if the OP wants to start selling meat pie, chin-chin and the likes, it takes money to learn to how to make these things. Are you going to sponsor her?

When it comes to teaching, did the OP tell you she found a teaching job and refused it? Even teaching jobs are becoming hard to find. Many of you are talking about starting a business. Do they teach entrepreneurial skills in Nigerian secondary schools and universities? Do you know how quickly a business will fail if the business owner has no idea what he or she is doing? Do you think everyone is passionate about running their own business?

Funnily enough, the children of Nigeria's ruling elite (politicians) are landing white collar jobs in CBN and customs and IRS while children of the poor and middle class are told after years of studying their eyes out to go and farm so that females will be raped on their farms by marauding Fulani herdsmen. After years of studying, you are telling people to go farm like you are going to provide the plot of land used for farming.

Nigeria's business environment is not even favorable. Ask foreign investors, many who are leaving Nigeria for other countries. A country like Nigeria that cannot even provide stable electricity, small business loans with low interest rates and a conducive environment for businesses to thrive. Abeg!

Wat nonsense r u talking u mean one will earn over 250k during nysc n fail to save sth tangible out of it to face life. Serious ppl save 80 to 150k after nysc frm their allawee n dts enough to start most biz or even do m.SC. so quit giving excuses

I do have business ideas but finance is the issue here.


Continue to be hopeful and pray for the best. Running a business is not as easy as most people attempt to make it looks like especially under the present economic environment. However you can also explore the option of "Volunteering" to work in a business or sector in which you have something to contribute. I assure you that volunteering is the easiest way to convince a prospective employer that you are valuable to his/her business under the current situation. You just have to either think outside the box for new ideas or think inside the box by way of re-arranging the inside of the existing box. I wish you well.

A friend of mine once asked this question:

Before we went to school there were no jobs, what makes us feel there will suddenly be jobs after we graduate?

Bottom line is learn a skill... If a job requiring a graduate comes along, good! If not, ur skills will keep u going.


From the ops comments also. It's obvious she just went to school for going sake. She didnt really learn much other than getting a paper.
Love the bolded, exactly my thoughts.
While I was in school myself, I picked up a skill and just 3 months after I finished my program, I started working with my skills I learned and not even my certificate.

So after graduating from the university about a year ago i have'nt got a job. I know most of you will say (just one year and you are complaining.) Well it does'nt matter.

All that matters is that one is without a job and it is extremely annoying and life is boring.
You see adverts everywhere of job openings and you wonder if there are just for show or if people are really getting these jobs.
Once or twice you see a testimony on nairaland that someone just got a job and you begin to pray for your own.
You wait and wait for a miracle because now your degree does not matter again. If you don't have somebody somewhere, 'na only miracle you go hope on.

After going through school, burning mid night candles, going for lectures, doing stupid assignments that lecturers never read and struggling to see that your name is on flimsy attendance cheat for ten marks, what do you get?
Answer - A long stay in your fathers house, waiting for when somebody will visit and dash you money. Because your parents do not have your time again.
Most times, you might even here comments like" abeg do go marry" or better still "you no get boyfriend?".
Sometimes you begin to wonder what went wrong but in the end, what can one do but hope for a miracle.

Life is hard o. Especially if you are unemployed and a girl in naija.

I can relate to you in many ways! I've been unemployed for some time and it's very frustrating, depressing, and at times discouraging. Keep the faith and keep looking/applying. That's what I tell myself each day. I believe those of us not working now will soon find something. It's a struggle. One bright side is to find something you like to do. If you have a hobby or talent in something like, for example, the arts or writing etc, that will occupy your time and leave you less stressed. My artwork and writing helps me. Also keeping my dreams alive and reminding self that I will go back to doing what I love, which is teaching, motivates me to keep going.

I wish you good luck and blessings! smiley
